The Things of God
and Things of Men
By REV. JOHN C. PAGE
Teaohor of Bible Doctrine, Moody
Bible Institute, Chicago.
TBXT,-But he turned and said unto
Peter, Get thee behind me, Batan; thou
art an offense unto me; for thou Buvorcst
not thc things thut be of God, but thoa?
that be of mun.-Matt. 16:23.
The latter part of this chapter
brings Into prominence the person,
passion and pros
pect of the Son of
Man. The words
of Peter lu verse
10 bring Into clear
view his person as
"the Christ, the
Son of the living
God." Ills passiou
is described lu
verse 21. He must
go to Jerusalem
and be killed am)
be raised again.
The prospect ls
presented tn verse 27. "The Son of
man shall come In the glory of his
Father with his angels." To deviate
from any of these three truths ls to
descend from Hu? level ol' "the things
that be of (.'(id" to the plane of "the
those Him bc of men."
Peter Iga om nt ly opposed the second
of (hose essential I rut tis und received
the rebuke recorded in verse 28. "Get
thee behind me, Sutun, for thou art
an oil euee milo me: tor thou savour
e.st mu Die things illili be of God, but
those thal he of moll'*.
Krem the viewpoint of the purely
human-"lin; things that he ol' men,"
the suggestion ol' Peter curries nothing
with lt to meet so severe a rebuke as
the Lord administered to him. "Pity
thyself" or "He lt far from thee" is
the impulsive expression of self-in
terest and self preservation, both the
Master's and his own. It is altogether
in harmony willi "Hu; things that be
of men." Put ns it is written, "My
thoughts are mu your thoughts, neither
are your ways my ways, saith the
Lord, for as the heavens are high
above the earth so are my ways above
your ways and my thoughts above
"The things tliat be of men," even
religious things, are expressed In terms
of self Interest. "Pity thyself" said
Peter, "Get thee behind me," replied
Jesus, "thou art an offence unto me."
Then snld Jesus unto Ills disciples,
"If' any man will come after uie, let
him deny himself and take up his
cross and follow me."
The things that be of God are best
learned at Calvary. In Its message,
death, and resurrection are the domi
nant notes. "The Son of man must go
to Jerusalem mid be. killed nod be
raised again." If any man will follow
Him, he must go the same way, the
wny of the cross and the tomb and
the resurrection morning. "If a grain
of wheat fall Into the ground and die,
lt hringeth forth much fruit." Apart
from death there cnn be no resurrec
tion into "newness ol' life."
No man can realize the best until
he has let himself go. Human nature
shrinks from this. It ls the acknowl
edgment of failure, the confession of
the inability of self, and also of re
liance upon Another, in "the things
that be of men," a large place ls given
to mottoes, laws, standards, Ideals,
symphonies and so forth, but "the
things that be of God" belong to a
different realm. "If any man will
come after me, let him deny himself
and take up his eros? and follow me."
The first menning of the cross is
death. Tho cross crosses us out so
that Another may occupy the place
formerly occupied by self. This ls
the denlnl of self, a different matter
from self-denial which ls practiced
during Lent or on Other occasions, and
which fits easily into the things of men.
To be a Christian ls not a weak sen
timental sort of a thing; it ls real,
vital, fundamental. It Involves n
change of outlook and a new eoncep
Hon of life.
The cross of Christ wns Inevitable
to Him luK-ause of His Identity with
us. He must go to Jerusalem and
die. The merited goal of the human
race Is death In nil Its implications,
The Son of God became the Lamb ol
God that Ile might pul away sin and
overcome death. Hy faith we may
behold Him bearing our sins In His
own body on the cross and there put
ting them away forever.
Hut more than that, ile ls lu Ills
death and resurrection, the forerunner
of a great multitude which no mau
can number, who have taken the same
view of life as He did. They hove
taken up the cross and followed Him.
In them. God has made the death and
resurrection life of Christ so real and
effective that they can assert ?vith
Paul. "I nm crucified with Christ,
nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ
liveth in me." This ls a supernatural
work wrought In the soul by the power
of God. Until this miracle is per
formed the genius of the Christian re
llglon cannot he understood, Christian
experience cannot be satisfactory, no!
can a Christian theology or philos
ophy be built up.
Idleness ls not rest. It ls not work
that ls the curse of the fall, but fa
tigue. Adam worked at tilling and
dressing the garden before he fell In
to si:.; afterwards lt was hard, dreary
unblessed work-work In the sweat ol
his brow which was his curse. Worli

HATS OF THE HOUR
Parislennes Are Devoted to the
Enormous Picture Type?, Worn by
Pretty Women, Ar? Conspicuous
at the Races.
At thc fashionable race meetings
and in all the smartest restaurants,
asserts a Paris fashion writer, one
recognizes that a war of hats ls In full
swing. Quite early In the spring sea
son Lewis-who luis great Influence lu
the feminine world-announced the
speedy arrival of very large picture
hots, with wide, Hut brims and rather
And side by side with these models
he showed-nt Monte Carlo and Biar
ritz-cavalier hats of remarkable out
line, the sort of hat that Cecile Sorel
has always worn.
Now it happens that the more ec
lectic Parisiennes have become devoted
to cloche shapes-large and small. In
fact, so devoted are they to these
charming styles that nothing can In
duce them to look, seriously, nt other
models. The favorite hat of the hour
remains the cloche-large or small.
At the races one sees enormous pic
ture hats worn hy very pretty women,
bul these are almost always manne
quins, who have been paid to show oh" !
some particular style. It is a ran? j
thing to see a real Parisian plegante
wearing a remarkably wide-brimmed
bat. We shall watch this little milli
nery war willi interest.
At least two of the most Influential ?
milliners in Paris are determined to
make big Hat-h ri mined picture hats
popular, but no ene can say, decidedly,
that this efforl will be really success
ful-Just as no one can predict the
future of the quaint IS'10 dresses
which are now shown In every impor
tant exhibition of models.
At any rate lt ls safe to say that
modified cloche shapes will remain
fashionable all through the summer
months and weJl Into the autumn.

A dispatch from Tampa, Fla.,
Chin?se are being smuggled Into
tho United States on a large seale
by way of Cuba and Florida,
Unless prom])! action is taken byv
authorities at Washington, condi
tions will soon be as bad un they
wore on (he Mexican border, where
il took live yeti rs to stamp it out.
These tire tho statements of Im
migration Inspector Whalen, of this
district, In whose territory much of
the smuggling bas been going on. ll?;
has asked for alfi
"Wo have learned that within tho
past few months almost 75,000 Chi
nese have been landed in Cuba," says
Whalen. "According lo the sta'e
ments we got from some of tho smug
gling parties that we have rounded
up, these Chinese remain in Cuba
only long enough to make arrange
ments with tho smugglers to be land
ed on tho Florida coast.
' "he fact that all the Chinese who
have been arrested in this vicinity
aro plentifully supplied with money
and are able lo obtain unlimited
funds to defray court, expenses indi
cates Huit there is a well-organized
smuggling combine nt work."
The latest arrests in the smug
gling war were in Charleston, S. C.,
whero four Chinese were picked up,
with railroad tickets from Clearwa
ter, I'la., a short distance from Tam
pa, to Washington, I). C. Six moro
were arrested tho same day at Dune
den. Fla., also near Tampa. Those
six were token when they tried to
buy railroad tickets to Washington.
They wore escorted by a Chinese
who had taken out naturalization
pallors. This man was later released
A month or two ago Federal pro
hibition officers, while in search for
contraband liquors coming into Tam
pa from Cuba, boarded a small schoo
ner and found, in addition to 2,H00
quarts of whiskey, seventeen Chinese
hiding in the hold.
The coast of Florida is an ideal
place for smuggling operations, as
there tire only a few placos along tho
